About This Class

Illustrator for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to create a cutout text effect in Illustrator. You will learn to cut text out of a photo so the text is filled with the image and you will learn to cut text out of a shape. In all cases the text will remain fully editiable. I'll also show you how to use one of these effects to create a usable piece of art.

Here are the download links for the textures used in this class:
